Things I've Learned from my Dog

When loved ones come home run to greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity of a joy ride.

Allow the wind and fresh air in your face to be pure ecstasy.

If what you want lies buried, dig till you find it.

Never pretend to be somthing you are not .

No matter how often you are scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and right back and make friends.

Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

Run, romp and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On warm days, stop and lie on your back in the grass.

On hot days drink lots of water and lie in the shade of a tree.

Be loyal.

When your happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

When it's in your best interests, practice obedience.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm, but stop when you've had enough.

And most of all...when someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently .
